Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Tell me about 1980

The country was really changing from 79-80, and the deads sound followed suit. A more conservative wind was sweeping the nation politically. Disco was out, Izod shirts, piano ties, the k car.

The dead moved from the power house funk of late 79 to a much more pulled in sound of 80.

1-13-80 is a must and one of my favorites
8-26-80 good sound
9-6-80 my first show, and an Althea that makes you weep
